Yuko Niwa won a silver medal in the women's taekwondo kata at the 19th Asian Games.

Yuko Niwa, a first-year student of the University's Tae Kwon Do Club (Graduate School of Health and Sport Sciences), won a silver medal in the women's Tae Kwon Do event at the 19th Asian Games held in Hangzhou, China, from September 23rd to October 8th. The women's taekwondo kata was the first Japanese team to make the podium in the event, which was adopted from the last Asian Games held in Jakarta (2018).

 Niwa said, "At the University Games (Olympic Games for university students) in July, I was not satisfied with the results and was extremely frustrated. Following that result, I turned my mind firmly toward the Asian Games this time, and through hard practice, I was able to achieve good results. I am very grateful to my parents and teachers for their support and guidance. The season is still underway, so I will stay strong and continue to do my best."
